ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT

Erik Horrie OAM

Erik Horrie had a truly eventful Games campaign when he competed at his first Paralympic Games in London. The day after his first heat, he suffered a seizure which saw him admitted to hospital. Having made a promise to himself years earlier that he would race and win a medal in London, he pushed on and made the final, where he won silver and then learnt the news that his fianceé had given birth to a baby boy. When he was 21, Horrie was involved in a car accident that left him with paraplegia. He began to play wheelchair basketball and in 2009 he made his debut for Australia with the Rollers and won gold in a World Cup qualifier and gold at the 2009 IWBF Oceania Championships. He made the transition to rowing in 2011 when he won a Bronze Medal in the Single Sculls at the World Championships in his first year in the sport. After his Silver Medal at London, the Penrith local went on to repeat that result winning Silver Medals at the Rio 2016 and Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
